The Diagnosis of Psychosis (Cambridge Medicine (Paperback))


By (author): Rudolf N. Cardinal, Edward T. Bullmore

Psychosis has many causes. Psychiatrists typically receive a thorough training in its diagnosis, but the diagnosis of psychosis secondary to non-psychiatric conditions is often not emphasized. An understanding of the underlying cause is important so that effective management programs can be implemented. The Diagnosis of Psychosis bridges the gap between psychiatry and medicine, providing a comprehensive review of primary and secondary causes of psychosis. It covers both common and rare causes in a clinically focused guide. Useful for both teaching and reference, the text covers physical and mental state examination, describes key investigations, and summarises the non-psychiatric features of medical conditions causing psychosis. Particularly relevant for psychiatrists and trainees in psychiatry, this volume will also assist neurologists and general physicians who encounter psychosis in their practice.

From Madness to Mental Health: Psychiatric Disorder and Its Treatment in Western Civilization


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

From Madness to Mental Health neither glorifies nor denigrates the contributions of psychiatry, clinical psychology, and psychotherapy, but rather considers how mental disorders have historically challenged the ways in which human beings have understood and valued their bodies, minds, and souls.

Greg Eghigian has compiled a unique anthology of readings, from ancient times to the present, that includes Hippocrates; Julian of Norwich’s Revelations of Divine Love, penned in the 1390s; Dorothea Dix; Aaron T. Beck; Carl Rogers; and others, culled from religious texts, clinical case studies, memoirs, academic lectures, hospital and government records, legal and medical treatises, and art collections. Incorporating historical experiences of medical practitioners and those deemed mentally ill, From Madness to Mental Health also includes an updated bibliography of first-person narratives on mental illness compiled by Gail A. Hornstein.

Standard Electroencephalography in Clinical Psychiatry: A Practical Handbook


By (author): Nash N. Boutros, Silvana Galderisi, Oliver Pogarell, Silvana Riggio

This book provides a concise overview of the possible clinical applications of standard EEG in clinical psychiatry. After a short history, the book describes the physiologic basis of the EEG signal, then reviews the principles of EEG in terms of technical backgrounds and requirements, EEG recording and signal analysis, with plentiful illustrations of the most frequent biological or technical artefacts. Normal EEG patterns and waveforms for easy reference are clearly presented, before the detailed description of abnormal patterns.

With the basic information in hand, the reader progresses to an account of the role of EEG in the diagnostic work up in psychiatry, covering nonconvulsive status epilepticus, frontal lobe seizures and non-epileptic seizures. The clinical application of EEG in both childhood and adult disorders follows, including many case vignettes. The effects of psychotropic drugs on EEG are highlighted.

The book closes with a discussion of currently available certification venues for Clinical Neurophysiology along with limitations of each venue. It calls for the development of training guidelines and certification processes specific to Psychiatric Electrophysiology.

The material is clearly presented throughout, with plenty of figures, tables with summaries of relevant findings, flow diagrams for diagnostic work-up, boxes with learning points, and short lists of key references.

We fully expect the book will become the standard teaching source for psychiatry residents and fellows, as well as a useful resource for practising psychiatrists and clinical psychologists.

Praise for the book:

“This distinguished group of editors has put together chapters that represent an excellent practical handbook on electroencephalography in clinical psychiatry, now a very important topic. I highly recommend it not only to psychiatrists, but also to anyone interested in neuroscience.”

Large-Scale Brain Systems and Neuropsychological Testing: An Effort to Move Forward (Springerbriefs in Neuroscience)


By (author): Leonard F. Koziol, Paul Beljan, Kate Bree, John Mather, Lauren Barker

 

This leading-edge volume offers a new framework for neuropsychological testing rooted in the current evidence base on large-scale brain system interactions. Expert coverage brings traditional discrete areas of cognitive functioning (e.g., attention, memory) in line with highly nuanced relationships between cortical and subcortical processing. The new findings point to more accurate and targeted testing, as authors expand on the judicious addition of nonstandardized methods to core diagnostic tools and the underused capacity of neuropsychological testing to assess social behavior and personality. The book’s emphasis on cognition in context gives practitioners better understanding of assessment and evaluation, leading to improved diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes for individuals as well as significant improvements in the field.

 

This innovative reference:

 

  • Reframes cognitive functioning in light of current data on brain interconnectivity.
  • Critiques current methods of neuropsychological test interpretation.
  • Reviews known, useful interpretive methodologies within a new context.
  • Features instructive case examples emphasizing accurate historical and test data.
  • Revisits the strengths and limitations of the bell curve construct.
  • Examines the interpretive significance of pathognomonic signs.
  • Details strategies for making neuropsychological evaluations more clinically relevant.

 

LargeScaleBrainSystemsandNeuropsychologicalTesting combines current findings, clinical sense, and common sense to ground neuropsychologists, school psychologists, child psychologists, and clinical social workers in the effective assessment of real-world functioning.
